Tomorrow, Thursday February 26 at 7-8pm Kennesaw State University will be hosting the 10th Annual Grady Palmer Distinguished Lecture. The lecture is open to the public, and I believe that many people in the Atlanta area may be interested in hearing this year’s speaker.
Dr. Brad R. Humphreys of the University of Alberta will be presenting “What Do Economists Know About the Economic Impact of Sports Facilities?” Brad is one of the discipline’s leading authorities on the topic, and my opinions on the Gwinnett Braves stadium issue have been heavily influenced by his research. I encourage anyone interested in the topic to attend. Also, if you want to learn more about the Sport Management program at KSU, this would be a good opportunity to meet some of our faculty and majors.
You can find more information here. If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to contact me.

Directions and Parking: I suggest parking in the KSU East Deck. Ignore the “reserved parking” signs, as I have made arrangements to allow visitors to park in the deck. The Convocation Center is the first building on your right as you exit the parking deck. Proceed to the front of the building (facing the main campus) and enter through the front doors. The room is on the left side of the lobby.
